Jimmy Jacobs on His Relationship w/ Vince McMahon, Austin Aries Being Miscast in WWE

Impact Wrestling star and former WWE backstage producer Jimmy Jacobs recently spoke to Sportskeeda.com and talked about Austin Aries's run in WWE, as well as Jimmy's relationship with WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon:

Austin Aries's time in WWE:

“I’ve worked with Austin Aries from the independents to Ring of Honor to WWE and now to Impact. He and I have had careers that have intertwined a lot over the years. I’ve always been a big Austin Aries fan. I thought part of the problem in WWE is that he was miscast. You know, we’d just turned Neville into a heel and we brought Aries in as a babyface. Anybody who knows Aries knows that he’s (chuckles) kind of an unlikeable guy naturally, in a lot of ways. And he’ll tell you that himself. So, I was upset that in WWE he never got that heel run, that he needed to get over that hump.”

Jimmy's relationship with Vince McMahon:

“So look, you have the freedom to come up with whatever ideas you want. It’s just that he’s the one who says no. And at a certain point, Vince says he likes people to challenge him but only to a certain point. And that’s kind of the balance you have to run there. That you get to disagree with Vince like once, and that’s it. (Laughs) I wasn’t like in the super inner circle but outside the inner circle. We didn’t have a bad relationship. I don’t think he actively disliked me, but we never clicked. I was kind of like a crazy, eccentric, flamboyant gender-bending artist and he’s like an eccentric megalomaniac billionaire. So, it’s cool now to be around people in a creative aspect who I don’t have to filter my ideas thinking, ‘Ugh, is this going to make him mad? Is this too off the wall?’ (Puts on a Vince McMahon voice): Goddamn, what the hell is that?”
